Quarantine Daze is a 2020 sketch comedy brickfilm series and community project coordinated by Zach Macias[1], created during the 2020 coronavirus outbreak. It is the biggest brickfilm community project in history, featuring "134 animators from 16 countries across 6 continents." The series consisted of six episodes, each focusing on a different theme, that premiered weekly during the pandemic. The series primarily features brickfilms, but includes several non-LEGO animated clips.

History Edit

Due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Zach Macias wanted to create a community event that would bring together brickfilmers from across the world stuck inside in quarantine. Conceived as a sketch show in the vein of Robot Chicken, Macias opened up submissions to anyone[2], rather than putting together a crew. The amount of submissions was so high that he had to split the clips up into six 15-minute long episodes, instead of the one video initially planned. During assembly of the clips, Macias noticed common themes through many of the submitted clips, and selected each episode's clips be centered around a different idea, such as Star Wars and superheroes.

Plot Edit

Each episode begins with a guy waking up at 8:00AM in the morning. A radio host, voiced by David Reino, does banter that changes from week to week. Set to the Quarantine Daze theme song, performed by Reisender[3], the guy brushes his teeth, makes coffee, puts on a Stormtrooper helmet, and flips on the episode for the week on the TV. His apartment contains items pertaining to each of the six episodes.

The final episode concludes with the guy turning off the TV, yawning, and falling asleep on his couch.
